All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that the words septic, sewer, sewage and effluent are not ones that most people use in day to day life and are generally quite happy that this is the case. However at All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we regularly discuss, at length, septic systems, septic services, sewage and effluent treatment because these are the words of our trade and we are proud of the work that we do. We enable homeowners to forget about their septic system and, even though they use them everyday, they don’t need to talk about them on a daily basis. Fortunately your septic system is not likely to require frequent maintenance as long as you are using it correctly. However for some property owners they like the peace of mind knowing that their system is being maintained but they would also prefer to not to have to do it themselves or take the time and expense of hiring a septic company everytime their system requires maintenance. This can be especially true for commercial property owners who have a septic system because a poorly operating septic system or one that breaks down or requires repair will cost money to fix and result in lost revenue while the system is not operational. This is why we have many clients on septic service plans which takes away the need to concern themselves about septic system maintenance and provides confidence that they are doing as much as possible to prevent future septic problems. We will service your septic system, usually on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis. The property owner will not even generally need to be present for the service so we can monitor and maintain a septic system with minimal disruption to our client. Today we have septic services scheduled for commercial and residential customers in Bellingham, Sharon, Wrentham, Franklin, Foxboro, Mansfield and Blackstone MA. If you would be interested in septic services or if you have any questions about services or septic systems please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that a septic alarm going off is a cause for concern. Property owners should contact a septic professional to investigate the cause for the alarm and to action anything that needs attention, whether that means a pump out is required or a repair is necessary to a septic pump or other component. Not only do we provide assistance to septic homeowners who have a septic alarm that has been activated but we also install septic alarms for customers who want the reassurance that it provides. Today we are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Rochester MA. If you have a septic alarm that requires attention or if you like to have a septic alarm please do contact our Norton Office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule an appointment if required on 508-763-4431 or visit http://allclearseptic.com/education/
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services not only provide septic services, inspections and repairs for existing septic systems but we can also provide the initial design for a septic system. Today we have a septic design meeting with a customer in Lakeville MA. Our client is renovating an older home which needs a new septic system. Rather than working with an old, inefficient system they have chosen to replace that system with an entirely new, efficient and cost effective septic system which we are providing the septic system design for. We have recently provided other septic designs for customers with properties in Oxford, Clinton and Holliston MA and because of our extensive experience you can be sure that we will design a septic system that best suits your requirements. If you need a septic design or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://allclearseptic.com/education/
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that if a septic system is used correctly and maintained it should process your wastewater effectively and efficiently without interference. However if you neglect regular septic maintenance it will undoubtedly stop working effectively and could eventually fail which is a unpleasant and costly and either means a septic repair or even septic system replacement. Regular septic maintenance does not need to happen that often. It is generally recommended that a septic system is pumped every 3-5 years. The exact regularity of your septic pumps outs is determined by a variety of factors including your water usage and size of your tank. For example a retired couple living in a large 5 bedroom family home with occasional family visitors will not need to have their tank pumped as often as they did when they have 4 teenagers living at home. You will, however, need to have you septic system pumped annually if you use a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Norwell, Hingham, Marshfield, Scituate, Hanover, Plymouth and Halifax MA. If you require septic pumping or have any questions about septic systems or septic maintenance please do contact us at our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://allclearseptic.com/education/

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services welcome in this new month with a pinch and a punch! It is the second half of the year already and we are as busy as we have ever been with septic inspections, septic pumping and cleaning, septic services and septic repairs. While we welcome the business we also try to educate our clients so that they use their septic systems correctly and can prevent the necessity of using our septic repair services. Many septic repairs that we are called out to could have been avoided of the property owner had been using their septic system correctly. Here are a few suggestions to follow to help ensure your system continue to work as it should:
Things you should do:
DO conserve water whenever possible as a means of reducing the volume of wastewater that will need to be treated and disposed.
DO make repairs to any faucets or toilets that are leaking.
DO make sure that you are only discharging biodegradable wastes into your system.
DO restrict or avoid use of your garbage disposal.
DO take the time to ensure that any down spouts or other surface water is diverted away from your drainfield.
DO keep the cover to your septic tank accessible by installing covers and risers for easier inspections and pumping.
DO get your septic tank pumped regularly and have it checked for any cracks or leaks.
DO have an effluent filter installed to prevent debris from entering your drainfield.
DO add a laundry filter to your washing machine.
DO put kitchen trash into a compost or throw it into the garbage – not down your drains.
Things you should NOT do
DON’T flush products such as tampons, sanitary napkins, condoms, disposable diapers or wipes into your system.
DON’T empty oils or other types of kitchen grease down your drain.
DON’T dump any items that can disrupt the treatment process or contaminate groundwater, such as: paints, oils, thinners, pesticides, poisons or disinfectants.
DON’T build anything over your drainfield or dig in it for any reason.
DON’T plant any landscaping over your drainfield – except grass.
DON’T drive a vehicle over your drainfield or compact the soil in ANY way.
